    Quite. Grounded is good, once you get past the fact that Gotham is the most terrible place on the planet to live, and Bats is probably on anti-depressants. Why does every writer these days try to be the new Edgar Allen Poe rather than 'just' the new Bob Kane or Bill Finger (or Denny O'Neil...)

    We don't know much about the Flashpoint world. Maybe Bane is a good guy there.

    That would make sense.

    We live in the era of narcissism, Omniscient. As long as you depict yourself as the effin' best in front of the whole world, every day of your life, it really doesn't matter whether that's true or not.

    Kings stories for bats are so short. Batman been so poor since he's taking over

    If they COULD write like Edgar Allen Poe, they WOULD write like Edgar Allen Poe.

    Why does every writer strive for making great memorable stories instead of being average.

    Isn't the question:
    Why DOESN'T every writer strive for make great memorable stories instead of being average?

    Lile or don't like King's style, average is definitely not a word that suits his work. He has his own distinctive voice, which is why he is divisive on Batman.

    Am I the only one (probably not) who noticed the position FPBats is standing in in issue 50 was the "same" spot he was standing in in 58? A mannequin perhaps?

    It doesn't explain the end of 60 (or why there's even an awareness why knowledge of the suit/person exists to others outside of Flash and Bats).

    Guess I'm trying my hardest to suspend my belief/ give King the benefit of the doubt that he knows what he's doing but man he's not making it easy!
